Bitcoin Nation – Introduction

My new book “Bitcoin Nation” was published on the 15th anniversary of the Bitcoin Whitepaper, October 31, 2023. You can read it below, one chapter per week. Or buy it here.


Regardless which of our society’s problems, you mention, Bitcoin maximalists respond with: “Bitcoin fixes this.”

This statement is often ridiculed by so-called “pre-coiners” (people who are not yet convinced by Bitcoin), and every so often Bitcoin enthusiasts are dismissed as crackpots, or Bitcoin is referred to as a “religion.”

For several years now, I have considered myself part of the circle of Bitcoin maximalists (people who see Bitcoin as more than just a cryptocurrency). In this book, I want to defend the thesis “Bitcoin fixes this.” with solid arguments.

More precisely, I will attempt to show that there are only two categories for the pressing problems of our time:

Bitcoin fixes this.
Only through Bitcoin can one begin to fix this.

This book is aimed at people with little or no economic background. The first part focuses on didactic aspects, while the scientific character takes a back seat. In the second part of this book, after having established a solid foundation, I want to provide even other Bitcoin maximalists with some food for thought.

Without giving too much away, in the latter half of this work we will discuss how a state built on Bitcoin could look like and whether such a “state” truly still deserves to be called a state.

    I will GLADLY buy your book at the exact same price Amazon charges for it — & with bitcoin, via Lightning to YOU, so you’d receive the FULL value of what i pay for it. But i will NOT buy it from Amazon, thus FURTHER extending their unwarranted, DANGEROUS, AND censorious effective monopoly!

    PLEASE implement Bitcoin via Lightning on your site. BTC Payserver is one of the oldest & most widely-used means of doing this (as well as receiving “on-chain” payments – which these days, are costing SENDERS noticeable transaction fees of around $5 or more. There are other systems for receiving bitcoin via Lightning as well. ONE (of at least several) excellent and reliable resources for setting up to receive bitcoin payments via the Lightning Network (‘LN’) are the videos by “BTC Sessions” (Canadian Ben Perrin).

    Podcasters Canadian Kevin Rooke (the Kevin Rooke Show), American Matt Odell (Citadel Dispatch), and Romanian Vlad Costea (Bitcoin Takeover) are 3 high-signal podcasters who focus a lot on the technical sides of Bitcoin, including the Lightning network.
